    General E46 Forum
    While adjusting the tilt steering and seat memories, my airbag light came on. I received that el cheapo b800 srs scan tool, but I don't think it's working correctly. When I select FA mode, it scans then only shows 01. I hit enter and only get 01 each time. It does not clear the airbag light...

    General E46 Forum
    Hello all, Ok, I know there are a ton of post on this issue, but none of them are clear for a late model e46. How and what tool is required to reset a 2004 or 2005 e46 SRS airbag warning light? Everything I see, like the Peake reset tool, mentions the early e46 models, but not the later...
